Being an adventurer at heart, Dathan is always ready to go, with his camera, to capture life through God’s lens. When Adam Finlay first shared about his visit to Nepal and the great things God was doing through the water well project, Dathan felt God pulling on his heart. He knew if he had the chance, he would go.
That chance came when his best friend, Mark Avery, said “We are going to Nepal!” So Mark, Dathan, Adam and Jon started praying and putting together a trip. When they arrived in Nepal in 2007, Dathan was blown away to see how Pastor Babu and Pastor Beki had accomplished so much with the little resources they had been given. Dathan was touched by the faithfulness of these two men and how they not only trusted God with everything, but how they also taught others to walk out a life sustained by the Lord.
Dathan had the chance to return to Nepal in 2013 with Mark, Adam and Preston. That trip grew his faith immensely. He was able to see the people and ministries that Babu and Beki, in God’s wisdom, had sown into and how they flourished. Dathan was able to reconnect with old friends he had met six years earlier, and see how God had used their work for the Lord. He was also able to capture photos and video to bring back to share the amazing ways God is moving in Nepal. Dathan plans to return to Nepal next year. He feels honored to be a part of the Touch Nepal team.
